How to write a macro for running a driveworksxpress project?

Just a little background here first. So occasionally I need to generate 20+ parts & drawings all at once with known dimensions. I used to use design table to generate all configurations and run a macro to export all configurations to sldprts. However, the part file size becomes massive even after I delete the design table and for some projects I wanted to generate assemblies as well and I find that configurations get too messy.

Therefore I have been using driveworksxpress and created multiple projects. It works great especially for custom parts where the dimensions are driven by customers. However, for projects with known dimensions, is it possible to write a macro to run a driveworksxpress project and generate all combinations?

 

Example below where I have all the dimensions for height and width listed under the drop downs.

 

Thank you!
